"LOVE: A word properly applied to our delight in particular kinds of food; sometimes metaphorically spoken of the favorite objects of all our appetites."

Brings to mind the famous "eating scene" from the movie version of his novel "Tom Jones."

Do you think he saw that scene?

Well, no, but I always assumed the scene in the film was faithful to Fielding's narrative. I just now scanned through the text (posted for free, here: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/6593/...m#link2HCH0048
), and it seems that scene is described only implicitly and only by polite suggestion, in Book IX, Chapter V.
